The Pardis Technology Park (PTP), as the most pioneering S&T park in the country, was established in 2005 under supervision of the Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology. PTP has been designed to commercialize technology achievements and create appropriate conditions for technology growth and hi-tech companies development through provision of high-end services; strengthening competitive advantage; and providing access to technology incubators, spin-off processes, and expert labor. It also meets the requirements of getting linked to the actual and potential global markets.
In 2015 around 230 hi-tech companies were operating in PTP. These companies have been rigidly selected out of more than 1500 membership applications. Figure 10 represents technology combination of member companies.
